Every day, the American Red Cross assists people who face emergencies. We secure food and lodging for the family stuck by a home fire. We provide clean-up supplies to the couple whose home was flooded. We give the child who lost everything the immediate psychological care she needs and a toy to call her own. We help a deployed soldier get home for the birth of his son.
We have prevented and relieved suffering, one day at a time, for more than 130 years. In that time, we have served millions of people. They live in small towns and big cities down the street here in Louisiana, across the United States and around the world.
365 days a year, the American Red Cross is ready to help. Those who join the Ready 365 Giving Program, the premium Red Cross membership group, enable Red Cross team members to provide comfort and hope when it’s needed most.
The Save the Day program supports essential Red Cross disaster services by inviting local businesses and organizations to contribute to local Red Cross relief efforts. Our Save The Day partners help provide a strong foundation for our local disaster services by helping keep our emergency response vehicles running, supplies well-stocked, Disaster Action Teams mobilized and provide relief to families in need.
